i'd also suggest 

-	--with-maxmiddb

+	--with-libmaxmiddb

to match

  pkg-config --list-all | grep max
    libmaxminddb                   libmaxminddb - C library for the MaxMind DB file format



suggests to enter the location of the DBs (as spec'd with 'geoip-directory' in named.conf)

doing so will pass config with no error, but then FAIL in 'make' step.

shouldn't config _check_ for a valid lib in any path spec'd in
